“Dancers and scientists make a stunning cosmic voyage” The Guardian
Choreographer Alexander Whitley takes inspiration from the stunning images and data produced by solar science research, in his collaboration with space scientists from STFC RAL Space.
With a specially created score by the electro-acoustic music innovator Daniel Wohl and an installation of high-definition imagery from visual artist Tal Rosner, 8 Minutes uses movement, film and music to illuminate our relationship with the star that gives us life.
8 Minutes is a Sadler’s Wells commission, co-commissioned by DanceEast and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
